Nothing proves that life has changed after Covid-19 then the phrase “drive by”. It is a phrase that means two different things depending on your point of view, pre-Covid and after-Covid.

Americans, it is time to have a “come to Jesus” discussion about American history. It is these types of talks that most will avoid but it must be had for the sanity of the country. Most Americans learned a varnished and palatable version of history. The history of America taught in American schools glosses over… Read More The Confederacy Was About One Thing – Slavery

EPN - Border Analysis - Sun, 06/07/2020 - 10:00pm
